One person's view of a a fine, intelligent, scientific meeting-- the bottom line best solution for the RL frog and SF garter snake is the "recovery action", keeping the 18 hole golf course. The economic and human recreation advantage was not a primary concern in the presentation.

With the 18 hole golf course the driving course would be raised and lagoon (Laguna Salada) would have a viewing area from current sea wall. Other alternatives: if 9 hole golf course the lagoon would have a walk around; if no golf course good luck to all species who live in the area in event of major flooding.

The RL frog and SF garter snake management goal is to clean and maintain sediment in the lagoon, and through a land corridor encourage both species to move to higher ground, including Horse Stable Pond toward Mori Point. Other adjustments and provisions to the golf course would better accommodate and protect these habitat as well.

In the spirit of humbug, Laurie Goldberg (sitting near the front of the room) seemed happily intent flash a 9"x12" "Restore Sharp Park" sign during the entire meeting. Don't think she did much listening but apparently that was neither important to her, nor was it her purpose. Other than that disturbance even the follow-up questions seemed thoughtful and quite good.
